Gorgeous Greenwich Mariner’s Compass Quilt

Mariner's Compass, 1862

 

Isn’t this a gorgeous quilt?  It’s a Mariner’s Compass pattern, but is a signature quilt. I found it through a Google Alert that I set up.  The quilt is owned by the Historical Society in Greenwich, Connecticut.

My eyes gravitated to this article, as my grandparents lived in Greenwich when I was a child, and I used to spend time every summer there.
